Thai_BasilThai basil is a type of sweet basil that has been cultivated to provide a distinctive set of traits preferred in Asian cuisine. It has an identifiable licorice flavor not present in sweet basil, and its flavor is more stable under high or extended cooking temperatures than that of sweet basil. Thai basil exhibits small narrow leaves and purple stems, with a mauve (pink-purple) flower. One cultivar commonly grown in the United States is 'Queen of Siam'.

Although Vietnamese and Laotians also use the Asian varieties of basil in their cuisines, the purple-stemmed licorice-flavored leaves have come to be identified as Thai basil. It may be mistakenly called anise basil or licorice basil, but it is different than the Western strains bearing these same names. Horapa leaves are a frequent ingredient in Thai green and red curry, while the basil used in Thai Drunken Noodles and "Thai chicken/pork/seafood with basil leaf" is kraphao (Thai holy basil). Thai basil is also an important ingredient in the very popular Taiwanese dish, Three Cup Chicken. Used as a condiment, a plate of raw Thai basil leaves is often served as an accompaniment to phở (Vietnamese-style noodle soup) so that each customer can achieve their own desired seasoning with the anise-flavored leaves.
